Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon: How many titles he has won and his chances of winning this year?
Novak Djokovic is still on course to continue his Wimbledon dominance as he prepares for a semi-final tie with Jannik Sinner.
Djokovic, who has won the last four men’s singles titles at Wimbledon, saw off Andrey Rublev in the quarter-finals, moving within one win of a yet another final appearance.
The Serbian defeated Rublev by 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 on Tuesday, and that ensured a record-equalling 46th major semi-final, equalling Roger Federer‘s record.
“I love it,” Djokovic said after the game when asked about being targeted for an upset. “I think any tennis player wants to be in a position where everyone wants to win against you. I think it is a privilege, as Billie Jean [King] said. Pressure is part of what we do, it’s part of our sport. It’s never going to go away… I know that they want to get a scalp, they want to win. But it ain’t happening, still.”
Djokovic is showing no sign of slowing down, and we could yet see a superstar final between the Serbian and Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz, with the pair currently jostling for the number one ranking.
Djokovic’s trophy record
Djokovic is now within two wins of winning yet another Wimbledon title, which would make him the joint-most successful male player at Wimbledon. Federer currently holds the record with eight titles, with Djokovic currently on seven wins.
The 36-year-old has 23 Grand Slam titles overall, including seven Wimbledon titles, 10 Australian Open titles, three French opens and three US opens.
Djokovic already holds the record for the most men’s Grand Slam titles, sitting one title ahead of Rafael Nadal and two ahead of the now retired Federer.
Djokovic holds 39 men’s tennis records and holds four more joint-records. At 36 and still not out, the Serbian is the most successful men’s singles player in tennis history in terms of Grand Slam wins, and he is still adding to his record, which is not likely to be surpassed for some time.
Nadal is set to retire soon, and beyond the Spaniard, the highest number of Grand Slam wins for an active player is three (Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka), putting them 20 short of Djokovic.
